More expensive ones have stronger motors which allow you to cut more material off in one pass. Also the cut is more accurate because of this and they usually come with carbide bits which makes a cleaner cut. The cheaper truer usually comes with a hack saw blade which doesnt cut as clean.
I do use a integy one which at times i hate because i cant take 4mm off in one pass. The one thing i did was replace the bit with a carbide one from Mico racing and now the cut is clean. Problem with doing this is the measuring gauge on the truer is not accurate now.
Scroll down to the right youll see the blade to use on the cheaper truers.
